    Ah, Athena was always my favourite godess of old Greece. What a shame, I missed it - but this was way ago with my parents :-) So, I have to go back, hope quite soon :-)

    Simone, you are so right...I was so close and did not see it because I didn't know about it. reminds me of Agrigento in Sicily. Love your analogy with the "building ant"! Vibrant, vivid photographs.

    Very impressive. I haven't heard about Paestum, but I was so close to it. Some other time, then.

    Those Temples really are striking - the imposing pillars and the way you caught the blue sky framed with the trees!! Fantastic to have the place almost to yourself too!

    When I was in Campania, I had to make a hard, hard, hard decision of not going to see Paestum... Well... I still try to believe that was a way to assure I'm going back there :-)) Your photos are really beautiful, Simone. Thanks.
